Two March Finishes

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Day! We enjoyed the day with our two daughters and their families. Our youngest daughter Sarah and her husband Dave had a delicious brunch dinner. The grandkids enjoyed the egg hunt in the backyard and we all were delighted with the sunny altho windy day!

Before we get further into April, I want to share a couple of cross stitch finishes I had at the end of March.

The first is a design by primitivebetty. I used a piece of PTP Ancient fabric and the recommended DMC flosses. I love the way it turned out and will get it framed to add to my Quaker wall. Oh, it's called Olde Primitive Letters!

Blackbird's Bluebird stitched up very quickly. I used Gentle Arts Midnight on Cafe Kona fabric. I'm going to add some old buttons and finish it into a pincushion.

Spring has finally come to my house !! I love to decorate my house for the seasons so I thought I would share with you a few of my Spring and Easter pretties!

I picked a bouquet of the gorgeous Daffodils that come up every Spring in our backyard! They're the kind of flowers I love.........yes, because they smell wonderful and are so pretty, but also because I don't have to do anything in order to have them......just pick them! The lovely egg is a Maggie Bonanomi original!

Here are some lace eggs I made many years ago. They were fun to put together.

Baby chicks are a sign of Spring so I couldn't resist this lovely pillow! Isn't this sweet little chick from a dear friend adorable?

And so I will leave you today with this message: I wish each and every one of you a Blessed Easter and a Wonderful Spring!!
